Procrastination is in! With increased stress and competition, we keep telling ourselves, “Tomorrow I will be happy!”
Right from childhood, we keep telling,
“When I will get good marks in 10th std, I will happy.”
When you get good marks, you start working hard for scoring good in 12th std.
“When I get good marks in 12th std, I get admission in a good undergraduate school. I think, after I finish graduation, I will be happy.”
You finish graduation and get a good job.
“When I will have a family, I will be happy.”
“When I will have a better job, more money, I will be happy.”
You get money. You get kids. And you get every luxury in life.
“When I will retire, I will spend my life on a hill station. And then I will be happy!”
You retire and move to a hill station. And then you see what life you lived. And realize that the whole life has passed and you didn’t enjoy the moments thinking that you would enjoy them later and gather all the happiness in life later.
You procrastinated happiness. And so you never got it! You didn’t enjoy the process of life.
Moral of the story is – Live the present moment fully and always be happy.
Many of us strive hard towards our goal. Strive hard. But at the same time enjoy the process too. Success is not achieving the goal. Success is enjoying the process of achieving the goal.
So, say, “I am happy today and I will be always happy.”
